In the beginning of the seminar, His Beatitude Patriarch Teoctist delivered the participants a blessing speech, in which he underlined the fact that the implication in the society problems represents a priority to the church. His Beatitude Patriarch Teoctist showed that sickness is not only a suffering of the body and asserted the importance of the spiritual means (fasting, praying, The Holy Sacraments) in re-establishing the balance of the human life. "The precarious body estate challenges the soul powers, His Beatitude Patriarch Teoctist added, but at the same time it emanates unknown energies, creating solidarity, carefulness, dedication, honor and patience, often leading to faith and wisdom. This way, the illness decreases its negative effect, and life is the only thing that matters. If health is a relative notion, the opposite sense of the sickness is life itself, for which any human being should thank God."
